The 9 person one was only $100.

Quite a steal.

 

I would have bought one but already have one.

 

They also had the pop up tents on sale too.

What state are you in?

 

Do they do this at all targets? or is it state specific.

 

I really shouldnt buy another tent but those do go up and down quick and look nice and roomy.

I was in danbury ct. not sure if it is state specific. Just checked target online and def. not on clearance/sale.

So I would check out your local stores.

That is an awesome price.

I bought the 4 person one, and it was more than that.  I would get the 9 for $100  (it's listed as $199 online.  Im going to target tomorrow...

i am not in the market for a new tent but i did upgrade my aerobed to the double high one with a memory foam topper...its positively luxurious :D

 

the only concern is that its so high that falling out of bed is a very real concern :lol:

hmmmm...we've been thinking of picking up something smaller than the Taj Mah Jennie for times when space is at a premium, like Strangecreek and Wormtown...  

 

thanks VSCT!

I'm looking for a super lightweight solo backpacker tent that is freestanding.     I already have a very lightweight tent, but it's reliant on stakes...which can sometimes fight with you.   (Frozen ground, rocky soil, super soft soil).     I've always worked thru the staking issues, but a free standing tent would be welcome. 

 

MSR's Hubba Series seems reasonable.    Still looking though.

Kang'dFirm'd.

 

Target does have the 9 person tent for $99.98

 

Quantities are limited.  Call your local target and have it put aside.

 

(Jambear, none in the Nashua Area.  Closest is Haverhill, or Danvers.   Everett MA has some too.)

 

I'm getting the last one in Marlborough, MA.

I've had a NF Rock 22 for close to 8 years and it's been nothing short of excellent.  I haven't done anything to it since purchase and it still doesn't leak without a footprint.

 

I use it at least a dozen times a year.

I have a story. I needed a tent once.  And a really nice boardie gave me his to borrow, and I used it for a few years.  And then we partied too hard in it, and it broke, and then another really nice boardie gave one to us for my boyfriends birthday, and now we have a really nice tent.  Thank You really nice boardies.

Nice, but my tent budget (and plenty more) is making sure the bus engine is in good as new condition this year.

So we soldier on with the ancient Cabela's dome.  I'd jump on this deal in a heartbeat if I could.

Check with Mountainmomma (think that's her boardie name), she has a cool ass cot/tent all in one thingy.  It will keep you off of the cold stoney ground but I'm not sure if the thing weighs 3 pounds or 30.....

 I've met her and even saw that thing.   It's pretty cool, but not backpacking equipment.   It weighs more like 30.

Depending on the weather (you know, if its not 105 degrees), you can still camp in boardie/family even if you go VIP.

I already had the smaller version of this tent, same design.  No rain fly.  I thought it strange, but it never leaked a drop, and Ive had it in some big downpours.

 

But, the reason this is on sale is because Coleman came out with a new version, and I think it has a fly.

I also had no problem last year at Vibes in the rain, as well as a couple other festies in which it poured.

Tabbooma's is going on 3 this year and no problems, rode out one heavy rain storm and some showers with no leakage, if its going to be hot Tabbooma likes to put a pop up over it along with some sides and a couple fans inside and all is good ;)

mine was damaged at Vibes.  Someone thought it was a good idea to move my tent over by dragging it by one of those poles.
